Can I watch my local channels on my android tablet when im away from home?

When I'm home I can watch local channels on my android tablet as I've validated my receiver's local IP address from within my app.  I'm away from home connected to my son's  high speed internet  feed and I cannot connect because the  validated IP address is  a local address  on my home router.  Is there a way to access  my DVR remotely so I can watch my local channels while I  away?

Nope. Your smart device must be connected to the same home network as your DirecTV equipment.
